A torture test for a Hoyt bow
Feb 08: Bowhunter Greg Robbins invented a torture test that Hoyt had not thought of - the ATV mountain bow drag.
Greg takes up "I was focussed on finding one of the big bucks we'd scouted. I tied down my bow to the ATV rack and we headed out. As we made our way to the trailhead, I had no clue that my Hoyt had come loose and was dragging behind, bouncing off the rocks like a tin can tied to a newlyweds' car.
My bow took a brutal beating. But amazingly, the limbs, riser, pockets, cams and string grooves - while really scratched and dinged up - were completely intact.
Later that morning, we set up a target and I nervously fired a few test shots. Dead on every time. No maintenance or tuning whatsoever.
A few days later, I took the bow back up the mountain and arrowed this hefty muley and since then I've tagged a nice bull elk with the same bow.
No doubt my Hoyt survived an ordeal that would've put other bows out of commission.
I'm still shooting that same bow, only now I tie it down a little tighter." Greg Robbins.
Real people, real stories, 100 per cent Hoyt.
